How Do I Open a Study at MidMichigan?

Any provider or student currently working at MidMichigan Health may present a new study to the IRB for consideration by submitting an electronic protocol via IRBNet ( All protocols including revisions and renewal must be submitted electronically via IRBNet, and all review decision letters will be issued electronically via IRBNet. Paper Copies are no longer accepted.

If you have any questions about the process or need training or assistance getting started with IRBNet, please go to MidMichigan Health's intranet and click the “Clinical Home” tab and then choose “Research” from the left side menu. There you will find instructions for submitting research to the IRB and useful links and documents.
